Jerusalem Post: Cyprus arrest of Hezbollah man 'uncovered large-scale Iranian terror plot across Europe'

Israeli security sources believe Hezbollah kept a storeroom hiding massive quantity of explosives in Cyprus for an Iranian-orchestrated terror campaign against Israel.

Israeli security sources are closely monitoring the arrest and investigation of a suspected Hezbollah operative in Larnaca, Cyprus, who was caught in possession of a massive quantity of explosive material.

Cypriot police suspect that a man arrested on Wednesday was planning an attack on Israeli interests on the island after they found almost two tons of ammonium nitrate in his basement, newspapers on the island reported Friday.

The 26-year-old man, who is Lebanese-born and has a Canadian passport, was detained after authorities discovered the stockpile.

WNU Editor: You would think that with Hezbollah being fully engaged in the Syria and Iraq wars that their focus would not be on starting a terror campaign in Europe .... but it appears that this is not the case.
